Dr. Knapp Answers Your Eyecare Questions

Q: What can happen to my eyes as I age?

As people get older, they come to recognize that they are at greater risk for developing cataracts and glaucoma.
However, relatively few seniors understand that “age-related macular degeneration” (AMD) affects more than 9 million Americans and continues to be the leading cause of visual impairment in the United States.According to recent research that tracked vision loss in nearly 5,000 patients over two decades, AMD is still responsible for severe vision loss in about 15 percent of Americans aged 85 years and older despite advances in prevention and treatment.

Early symptoms of the more common “dry” form of AMD include poor adaptation to dim light, while the less common “wet” form of the disease produces wavy and blurred vision.

Researchers have found links between AMD and some lifestyle choices, such as smoking. You might be able to reduce your risk of AMD or slow its progression by making these healthy choices: Avoid smoking, exercise regularly, maintain normal blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and eat a healthy diet rich in green leafy vegetables.
